virginia. we can't rule out the chance for more scattered showers or thunderstorms. take a look at the storm reports from today, we had three tornado warnings today, a lot of wind damage across the area, a lot of hail reports too. localized flooding mostly confined to the lehigh valley and the poconos. chester county and the lehigh valley including north hampton and lehigh saw a majority of the storm damage. what you see here is a description of some of that storm damage. this is in north hampton county 4 to 5 homes damaged, and that would mean wind damage in this case. we had very high winds, in that area, that's where we had that tornado warning earlier this afternoon. future weather as we go through tonight. picking up on the potential for more showers or storms to move through. morning commute tomorrow i think we'll be dryer than we were this afternoon, we cannot rule out morning showers for your commute. not going to be a washout, though. we're going to go through the afternoon, seeing improving conditions. at least a stray shower or
thunderstorm in the forecast. thursday we start off with more clouds moving in for thursday and then the rain comes back we're stuck in this unsettled pattern as we end out the week and possibly go into your workweek. rain could be confined south. we'll be watching your friday forecast and even into the weekend. so far for your fourth of july weekend if you're headed to the jersey shore or delaware beaches, still a chance for thunderstorms saturday. some of the models agreeing on the rain this weekend, so far i'm going to throw a chance of a thunderstorm in, either way, it's not going to be a wash out all weekend. sunday looks good. showers and possibly some scattered thunderstorms overnight. 59 for the low in philadelphia. mid-60s north and west. tomorrow morning a chance of a shower. i don't think it's going to be like today. we could see the chance of a thunderstorm mid to upper 80s through the afternoon tomorrow. still hot and humid, as we go into wednesday. thursday 87 degrees, we have a
chance of showers around still, mostly south. friday could see the same thing, watching the rain chance into the weekend, the weekend is not going to be a washout. i think sunday looks good. the weather delaying the philly's game tonight. we'll hear from the manager the rest of the season. a soccer player from the delaware valley kicks the women's team into the u.s. cup finals.
